30 Days of Summer Reads: The Memory Keeper’s Daughter

Jul 25, 2009Write!

The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards is an engaging story that kept me turning the pages. No simple answers, no neatly drawn up plot, this book held me close to each character, all exquisitely drawn. At times I wanted to shake one; other times I cried for another (and tears are so rare when I read). The power of love, secrets, and shame are all wrapped up in this haunting story about a family in crisis.
